It works. It's the ONLY thing that I have tried that didn't make things worse, that actually helped get rid of my scars and redness. And it moisturizes without clogging my pores, a huge plus. And I think it may be preventing future acne from forming or helping the acne I do have heal, because I haven't had any problems with acne since I started using it. But also of note is that I dab on my tea tree oil treatment beforehand as well then add some of this to moisturize accordingly.
I found this specific gel in Costa Rica (I happened to be visiting) and wanted to give it a good review since I didn't find any generic aloe reviews. If it's important to anyone, here are the ingredients: freshly harvested organic aloe infusion and pup, organic botanical extracts, agar-agar (red seaweed gelatin), vegetable gylcerin, aromatic mix of tropical fruit essential oils, carbomer, grapefruit seed extract, and sodium benzoate (preservative)
